  • Oh my. I’m here as Gunner Peterson mentioned your name and now racing through to part 2. Great so far and hearing the real life struggles of others.

  • 4:00 | “If your movement abilities fall below the cut, even in an environment where other people grow, you won’t grow”
    You’ll either stay the same or won’t adapt and be potentially at risk… “because you’re putting yourself in an environment where you don’t have a feedback loop and everyone else does”

  • Great Video! I would like to add that I would take 10k to work early mornings and late nights because I come from Greece and I want to work in the States. Its not enough to live but its a start and I want someone to trust me to get my one leg inside somewhere and make them see that I worth 30 and 40k down the road

  • Some really interesting views that are being shared. I hope this becomes a more popular way of sharing development in the coaching world, as it allows for so many people to be engaged in the discussion. Something that you said, that I use a lot myself, is asking that question; what is the point? In my opinion, for overthinking to be useful, understanding what the point is, is critical to making the thinking reflective and beneficial. I look forward to part 2.

  • Be Totally OPTIMISTIC is life. Speak Positive things into everything you do. Work hard towards achieving what you dream for, make that a reality and Love yourself and the people that support you in good ways. Stay humble and KNOW GOD EXISTS������

  • Oprah you are so right. When we make mistakes that is God talking to us to pay attention. He is teaching us a lesson. So when you make a mistake don’t be sadden, yet laugh and say thank you Jesus, “ I needed that.” Hahahehe hahahehe ILYWMWHeart morning LDH

  • Brett,
    Great advice as usual. Your course valued really helped me out this past year. Thanks for putting out all these great resources.
    All the best,
    Joe Dores

  • I declare and decree all those in poverty will receive a stimulus check from our 2021 President to help with their 1st and last month’s rent so the poor may enter into a clean place call home as long as they are committed and able to work.

  • I recommend the powerful spell caster who helped me got my ex partner back to me,message him on WhatsApp now (+2347084032769) he will help you too

  • you are little creation come in the world to worship god the main purpuse in this life life is short just look for the right religion

  • Beautiful saying and I would suggest you to read Quran and hadees as it will make you the best version of yourself and You can know the true of purpose of life know before it’s too late start from today accept Islam follow Islam the only true religion.

  • I know who I am I’m a Woman of GOD A Human Being Created by ALMIGHTY GOD HIMSELF To Serve And Worship Him I’m his Daughter Hes My Father In Heaven Hes My Guide my Strength Everything

  • Just showed up in suggested when millions are waking up during this PLANDEMIC. Have ZERO respect for anything this woman or celebrity has to say. They are all (or majority are) involved in pizzagate, pedophilia, child trafficking. Be prepared to learn that your fave actor, musician, politician are satanist pedophiles. Sounds so unbelievable doesn’t it? Sadly it’s true. Please do your research people. The world is waking up fast and learning the truth about the matrix. #redpilled

  • Love yourself first. You have to live in your body and look at it ever day. I set myself goals no matter how small they were and build on that whether it’s personal or professional.

  • Knowing who you are and who you aren’t. I want to be myself and fulfill the highest form of self expression. Significance and service brings success. Learn to endorse yourself and let your potential impact your life always. Surround yourself with people who want what is best for you. Stand for for yourself and what you believe in. Mediocrity is not your drama. Let your good shine. People won’t always like you, that’s ok for everyone that hates you, many people will like you. It will bring balance to your life. Some will hate you and some will love you, that’s the norm. Gravitate toward your best self. Thank your haters for encouraging you to stand up straight and becoming excellent in your endeavors.. I am blessed to be me.

  • It should be hate speech to point out that almost 100% of interracial rapes involve a non white male perpetrator and a white victim.

  • Women should have the right to choose if they want an abortion, however ladies please don’t do it. The pain from the lost of your child may not be apparent at first, but the pain will come and it will devastate you, break your heart and sadden you to your deepest core. I have regrets and nothing that I do can fill the void in my heart from my loss.:(:(:((( Love Linder

  • Coach! Thank you for this. Moved in the US for 2 years and yet still no strength and conditioning job. Its tough, but never giving up. But thank you for this.


  • I’m know who I’m! a daughter of Heavenly Father come here to learn and to serve my brother and sisters to serve God I will be back to him in the end of my journey. Here I will live by faiths doing my best that I can do when I serve I feel happier be the best..

  • Brett, I’ve been viewing these informative videos back-to-back now and have seemingly watched them all once or twice. Any possible chance you can speak on “From Intern to Strength Coach”? How to prepare, what tools to have, what to be ready to present to the head coach or AD, etc. if not a direct msg is also helpful

  • Also there will always be a mother, a father, a friend, of a child who lost their life because of a bomb dropped by someone she helped gain the power to do so. Just watch this video through the eyes (which probably can’t even look at an internet screen), or in those shoes, of someone who’s lost so much, trying to understand why people look at her as a good example. Then ask yourself why this culture is so beyond repair and keeps getting worse and is never growing in the right way.

  • And Jesus called them to him and said to them, “You know that those who are considered rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their great ones exercise authority over them. But it shall not be so among you. But whoever would be great among you must be your servant, and whoever would be first among you must be slave of all. For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”

  • I personally feel this is wrong for a famous person to do; that she is not filling her own obligation. To say “no one will know who the housewives of Atlanta are in three years”. I don’t know who they are now but that makes no difference and is not meant to diminish any of them or put them below another. What if someone said no one will know who Oprah “whatever her name is” is in three years.

  • Oprah’s advice would be good for my,unemployed son,so I turned the VOLUME UP REALLY LOUD SO HE CAN HEAR IT,!! Because He has great potential!!!!

  • I have been training/teaching myself for years (insert joke if necessary) 9 years to be exact, the convict conditioning system of bodyweight training (books 1,2,3 and c-mass). I can attest to being self sufficient in this department, not only is it easy on the finances but it’s really good fun as well. Alongside continuing to learn and gain strength and some bulk of my bodyweight routine(s) I’m taking up Pavel Tsatsouline’s book on kettlebells called simple and sinister. Also if people are interested Brook Kubik’s dinosaur training book is a decent read as well (disclaimer: I have not used a barbell in years).

  • She said to be of service and significance. Service to me means people in the medical field, I’ve been a teacher and yes, it’s service but I’m tired of doing that and I certainly don’t want to go into the medical field. I’m also an animal activist and yes, that is service to animals whom I love and will do anything for. I guess what I’m saying is that I can’t think of anything I am passionate about that is of service to the world. Any ideas?

  • Iam surrounded by the magnificent and remarkable gentleman that God sent my way
    I thank God for my trail so you could pick me up and love me my love.
    ❤️. You so much my love ❤️


  • The progress comes from understanding the person in the mirror. I can not take the advice from Oprah because she talks from both sides of her mouth. Race relations start with great leadership and most blacks have been taught by very racist leaders in their own race. You with never get to your potential by following and blaming others. What really happened to Dr Martin Luther King.

  • I have always felt worried cause I don’t have I plan for my life but today listening to this change everything, now I realized that I may have not a plan but I know the direction I wanna follow.

  • Very sweet talk but there is no more else. Success of life is work work and work and safe your money. And live peacefully. Rest of your talk is absolutely rubbish but nothing. Sorry gorgeous.

  • I have advice for you Oprah: Have a bag packed, your private jet at the ready, in case Ghislaine name drops. We all know what a race pimp you are, and evidently Weinstein’s as well! And on Epstein’s list too? Creepy!

  • Thank you for the useful advice coach. I’ve been out of the weight room for a couple of years and still trying to get back into coaching again.

  • The conversation around the 11 min mark about education having value is important, but I’ve found it quite interesting how much the concept doesn’t revert back to creating income. In the private sector, interns dont cost money, they essentially save money so if they can do a task and follow an order they provide value. If you’re being paid, then you have to at accept at some point that you have to drive revenue. If your education drives more revenue than the intern can save, you have a valid argument to save your position. I think there is a gap in education when we say, I have a master’s degree, I should be paid more. We need a deeper understanding on how the marketplace rewards results.Because in the market place value is rewarded in income, not by the employer but by the market itself. If the market place finds value, then the employer can financially reward the employee. This takes me back to the book Lynchpin by Seth Godin also Purple Cow by Seth Godin.

  • I know Oprah doesn’t want to be president but how about vp Oprah? People say Joe is looking to run with a woman, couldn’t think of a better choice, she is wise & caring. Those two things the orange man is not.

  • I went to Domino’s Pizza outlet once in Ip mall Vijaya with my daughter. The place was stuffed with young people. They were making a lot of noise. I understood that they were happy and having fun. The young man behind the counter was eyeing a girl who was looking with uncharacteristic venom at me and my daughter. We had no idea who she was but she thought she knew us. When I gave my order the young, hindi speaking, coloured skin, Indian misbehaved with me. My daughter told me not to buy pizza from that outlet ever again and we never went there ever. My daughter still buys pizza. There are outlets where the service is definitely good but I needed to tell this. I maybe just one customer who suffered insult and it’s nothing. We just laughed afterwards.

  • Thanks a lot.
    Just I want to start I don’t leve in USA but I want to learn but I don’t know where??
    Can you tell me about any programs make me begin my journey.
    Sorry about my English

  • I used to follow Oprah until God saved me. Now I see the way the truth and the light which is Jesus Christ. The narrow path leads to eternal life, tge wise road leads to distraction and many will go in that way.
    Oprah is deceived and deceiving millions.
    Wake up

  • Brett that video was great, I love hearing your story. I am looking forward to being a part of this channel and I feel it is definitely needed in our (an other professions). I’ve spent the better part of my life, honing my craft (set & reps) and honestly, paid no attention to communication and behavioral skills (figured it just came naturally and either you had it or you didn’t). You were the person that sparked my interest a few years ago in Behavioral Sciences, Social Psychology, Social Neuroscience, Developmental Psychology, etc. Now, I’m attempting to learn and share as much as possible to be the best version of myself and guide my student/athletes to be the best version of themselves as well. We appreciate you consistently giving back to our profession.

  • What if you don’t have the traditional background. Like I didn’t major in kinesiology or exercise science. Any path to becoming a strength coach?

  • This is mine to you……shut up! Selling weight watchers and being filmed from the fat neck up. Giving advice on raising kids yet you have none. Marriage advice yet never married. Your rich old ass is out of touch with the minions. ��

  • Thank you Very much for your genuine tips on being a Strength Coach. I have been coaching and Training clients on Boxing and also Physical fitness side of things. But with your advice just gave more insight. Wow. Keep it up. I would like to also expand my current small business.. Ashraf London UK.

  • Looking forward to this channel. One thing I’ve always found a hard time researching is what a 2-4 block phase of power training would look like with exercise selection, reps/sets, rest intervals, etc.

    There is so many programs for hypertrophy, basic strength, max strength…but I’ve yet to find a good resource that doesn’t cost me $1000 to fly out to a seminar on what a power phase looks like especially right before a season like football or basketball or baseball where I want to peak the team after building a ton of strength

  • Hello sir i m jabbi from india i want to become a nsca cscs and i want to know is there any scope of cscs in germany or europe?also want ro know salary of cscs (nd i have no exercise related field.and i m going to do ace certification after that i”ll do nsca cscs certification )please tell me i m doing right or wrong..

  • Let’s Uncover Racism in the Ride and discover another Black Life that mattered as we get REMEMBER that EVERY BLUE WORD on the WEBSITE is a HYPERLINK See on the WEBSITE Home page the “Abuse by VW” and the THREATS received by many BLACKS as we continue to purchase that companies products and they grow richer as we apart. We MUST consider P.O.P Court documents indicated VW tried to Blackmail Mr. Brock with Knowingly False info, that resulted in Mr. Brock Joining the $70,000,000.00 Class Action Discrimination Lawsuit.

  • Would love to see more stuff like this from Matt. It seems like he gets talked over quite a bit in the Table Talks by Jim and Dave so hearing what he has to say is often difficult.

  • I only wished that people like me who live in Australia could vote for Oprah as the next president of the USA because she would win in a landslide.

  • I got a question Dave: as a younger lifter. Who in a lack of a better term just want to be a strong mother fucker. When does “fat loss” play a role? When do you know like hey you fat bastard you need to lose a bit of weight. Or as your younger is it just fuck it eat everything get fucking big. And to give a number at 6’1 I’m about 310 almost 21 years old. Strong but obviously want to be a fuck ton stronger and bigger. But I don’t want to walk around a 400 pound fat fuck either. If 400 pounds guaranteed a 3000 total then off we go. To sum up my question when you were younger did you worry about body fat? When do you decide to start cutting the fat? And if you could touch on losing fat such as cardio vs calorie deficit type shit. If I get a reply that’d be dope ��

  • So consistent with your content.:You have spoken about this on Instagram and podcast episodes. Always good to hear the same thing, just reinforces the ideas.

  • This is breathtaking. I just turned 50. I am in the right place. It was the right time. I am in the right frame of mind. To hear these words. I am truly grateful.

  • Great story man! Purchased your Conscious Coaching book and have been so in tuned with your approach to not only the way you develop athletes, but also how you present your content within the coaching realm of having self awareness to how we as coaches need to have better communication skills to be effective leaders.

  • Hi Brett, great video and looking forward to hearing more about your story and ideas. One thing I am struggling with in a group setting for certain athletes (typically better ones) how I get them to enjoy and push themselves as much in the weight room as they do on the pitch. What are your typical go to points you look for in athletes when wanting to find out what makes them tick? Apart from a sit down and 1 to 1 talk.

  • Any tips on how to live if you aren’t in the top 5% of being excellent and driven in any field? I practice classical piano for 5 hours a day, but because I’m kind of rubbish in an extrinsic way (I got great at the piano through disillusionment and avoidance of the banality of life but the wonder of music made life worth living) I’ve found myself working as a cleaner to make ends meet.. often there doesn’t seem like a bridge between pursuing excellence and (work) reality where the bridge resonates deep integrity. For me the link is completely invisible.
    This video kind of highlights for me a serious problem about myself, and the dilemma for lots of wonderful people living in what can seem like an alien, hostile, and possibly seemingly pointless external reality.I would kill myself if I didn’t love being alive so much.

  • Want to learn more about Matt Rhodes?

  • Congrats on the channel. You painted a methodical illustration on the adversity of strength coaching in a world that is changing fast.

  • Perfect vídeo,i found almost all the books on Amazon’s Kindle,nowadays with Instagram most people have a more superficial knowledge about training,I’m a 17 year old beginner who is very interested in going deeper into this subject,and your vídeo helped me immensely! Thank you and hugs from Brazil my comrade

  • I want to add: science and development of muscle hypertrophy brad schoenfeld. For intermîdiate advanced lifters: it has a part where it talks about hormones mtor insulin… which is so interresting
